Ideal for independant workers
Engineering Aid II (inspector) (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – May 20, 2016
If you enjoy working independently, then a public works inspector for the City of Wichita is your ideal position. Typically your responsible for the inspection of large scale public works projects or several small scale projects at a time. A typical day consists of reviewing the work performed on one or more job sights, and verifying it aligns with the project plans and city specifications. The supervision is minimal as the project engineer is usually working in the office while the employees are in the field. Most supervisor contact is by phone, text, or email.
Most co-workers are easy to get along with. As most have their own projects, contact is infrequent with the exception of regular staff meetings.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with the irate public. As these are public works projects, they usually involve construction zoning, blocking traffic, work on public utility easements. Working in these areas tend to irritate the public, and as the most available city worker, you usually bear the burden of letting the public vent.
The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that your helping to make the city a better place. While the public is irate during construction, they are usually pretty grateful at the conclusion of the project.
